Street Stylin'

I haven't posted in a while so let's catch up on what I have been up to the past couple of weeks. I have lots of exciting news I can't wait to share with you!  Firstly, I attended the seasonal Opera Lane Cork fashion show. I had come into the city centre to stroll around the shops and to spectate the show when I was selected from the crowd as a best street style finalist. There I was on the podium in front of the crowd explaining my outfit and style, whilst dying with a hangover. I managed to keep it together and came away with a goody bag on the day. For the condition I was in, it was a random enough spent Saturday! Lucky enough for me, it was judged on style and thankfully not smell.

So here's what I wore: my jumper knit is from American label, Wildfox Couture. I am a huge fan of everything Wildfox, and have bought numerous pieces of theirs over the years from tees to scarves. Although the knit itself was not cheap, It has been a celebrity favourite and is beautiful made, has a super-soft feel and is a loose fit with distressed finishing. Shop my style here: http://www.asos.com/Wildfox/Wildfox-Seeing-Star-Jumper/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=2831460&cid=8058&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=20&sort=-1&clr=Red
My outfit was completed with a pair of Topshop leather shorts, The Kooples Sport high top studded wedged trainers, and my The Kooples beige leather jacket.
In other news, I have begun a personal shopping service. If you need any help with your image or want to change your style email me at: yuckyduckfashion@gmail.com. One of my previous personal shopping tasks was to shop for a lady going on a sun holiday. This gave me the opportunity to search for sun pieces for myself as I am going to Portugal on the 13th of May. I found that particular experience challenging as I have only ever been on two sun holidays myself and therefore  always find it difficult to know what to purchase and pack! My next blog post later this week will be about my personal shopping experiences and my sharing my sun holiday purchases. You can be my judge!
Finally I am delighted to announce that I will appear in the June edition of Xpose Magazine. I can't wait to reveal to you what I choose to wore for my outfit choice and I will give teasers away of the photos in the coming weeks. I can't wait to attend the Xpose live convention at the end of May held in Cork. This time I promise I'll be showered and ready! Next weekend I am going to attend a charity fashion show in aid of the Girls Club Cork (11/05/13) in the Savoy. Tickets are €20 and available on the door on the night.
I have also given into setting up a Facebook blog page so if you're on FB come give me a 'Like'
and a 'Follow' on Twitter:

 Until next time Ducklings,
